Rachael’s Women Court Foundation on Sunday January 19, 2020 held her 2nd anniversary with a special  programme for widows.



The well attended programme, specially organized for widows was held at CAC Miracle Centre, Mushin, Lagos.



The Convener of the foundation, Evang. (Mrs.) Rachael Ariyo urged the widows to see widowhood as a challenge and not the end of life.


Evang. Ariyo who said she has been a widow since the year 2006 told the widows that widowhood does not stop what God wants to use them for.


"Being a widow is not the end of life. It is just a challenge of life that people face everyday. If God can help me to overcome the challenge as a widow, God can take you to where you never imagine you can get to. If He has done it for me, He can do it with anybody," the Cleric said.



It was a three-in-one programme which included the birthday of Evang. Ariyo, thanksgiving of the foundation and the launching of the book entitled “Dignity of Widowhood.”


While commenting on the book, the Cleric said:  "Dignity of Widows" talks about the challenges of widows in which I am one of them. I lost my husband in 2006. I went through a lot of challenges which prompted me to really key into the vision. God told me wherever I am going to minister I should talk about widows. I was like if I am going to do that God needs to do something very great in my life which He did because He has been faithful to me. Though I left the vision for some years, God sent to me for me to revisit the vision which I did and that is why I went into the widows' aspect of Rachael’s Women Court Foundation."
